As we enter 5th week of NFL betting, there were one or two surprises still being processed from the previous weeks games, including the Buffalo Bills impressive ending of the New England Patriots perfect record with a 16-0 shut-out victory.
Elsewhere, the woeful Cleveland Browns now find themselves as the only franchise without a win.
Arizona Cardinals @ San Francisco 49ers (1am, Friday)
The Cardinals travel to California, to take on the 49’ers on Thursday night, with both sides looking to turn around losing streaks.
The Cardinals made it two defeats on the bounce with a 17-13 loss to the LA Rams last week, as Arizona QB, Carson Palmer took a battering from the Rams defence. The 49’ers are now on a losing streak of three, after losing 24-17 to the Dallas Cowboys. Offensive improvements were notable, but a withering defense, couldn’t stop the rot. Both sides have their problems, but the Cardinals are favourites.
Atlanta Falcons @ Denver Broncos (9pm, Sunday)
Two in form sides meet in Colorado on Sunday, with the Falcons taking on the perfect record of the Broncos at Sports Authority Field.
After an opening day defeat, the Falcons have won three on the spin and are fast becoming the most entertaining side to watch, with the highest scoring offense and third worst defence in the NFL at the time of writing. The Broncos continued their perfect start with a comfortable 27-7 win over the Buccaneers, with an excellent defensive performance that shut out their opponents over the last three quarters.
New York Giants @ Green Bay Packers (1am, Monday)
The Giants visit Wisconsin to take on a rested Packers side, who had the weekend off. Both sides have won two games apiece so far.
After winning the opening two matches, the Giants lost their second match in a row, in a 24-10 defeat to the impressive Minnesota Vikings, with the New Yorkers struggling in both offense and defence. The Packers had a bye weekend and will be raring to go, as they look to make it two in a row, having beaten the Detroit Lions in week three, they could win big here.
